Arianny Celeste Knows How To Defend Herself

Arianny Celeste doesn’t have any future plans to step inside the Octagon and mix it up with the likes of Ronda Rousey, Sara McMann or Miesha Tate.

However, the Octagon girl isn’t afraid to defend herself if it comes to that.

During a recent appearance on MMAjunkie Radio, Celeste re-told a story in which she was forced to do just that.

“It was after I’d been with the UFC a couple years. I didn’t have any kind of name or anything, but some girl was picking on me and I had to defend myself.

“She physically tried to attack me so I had to defend myself; and I ended up hurting her pretty bad because I learned a lot of things like hammer punches and kicks to the stomach.

“That was pretty dirty, but I had to do it. I’m not proud of it, but I had to defend myself. I’m a very non-violent person.”

Along with being seen at the majority of the UFC events around the world, Celeste will return as host of “Overhaulin” next month on Velocity. The show airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.

You also might remember that Celeste was one involved in a “fight” with her now-fiance after issues, resulting in her missing the portion of a live UFC show.

Rory MacDonald Details Embarrassing Incident With An Avocado

Rory MacDonald showed inside the Octagon, Demian Maia was no match for him this past weekend, scoring a decision victory at UFC 170.

Outside the cage, though, MacDonald was defeated by something else: an avocado.

After picking up his seventh UFC victory, MacDonald (16-2) discussed a kitchen incident that almost forced him to pull out of his fight in Las Vegas.

“I stabbed myself (while cutting an avocado),” MacDonald said. “It was pretty embarrassing. I couldn’t believe it.

“I thought I was going to have to pull out because you could easily hit a tendon.”

The Tristar fighter went to the hospital, got himself stitched up and checked out, saying, “everything’s fine and intact. I fought and everything’s cool.”

With the win, MacDonald got himself back on track after a decision loss to Robbie Lawler last year. He has dropped just two UFC fights in his career – to Lawler and former interim champion Carlos Condit.

UFC’s Donald Cerrone Gives Title Belt To NASCAR Driver

While the UFC prefers to hold main events on holiday weekends, for NASCAR fans this weekend is a holiday, as it marks the return of the sport with the Daytona 500.

Earlier this weekend in Florida, the UFC’s Donald Cerrone presented his good friend Kevin Harvick with a championship belt.

Cerrone and Harvick have more than just a friendship, as Harvick’s management team directs the career of “Cowboy.”

Cerrone also sat atop the trailers inside the pits to watch the action.

GSP, Alexander Gustafsson Make Wager On Winter Olympic Hockey Final

Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre is feeling confident in his Canadian hockey team bringing home a Winter Olympic gold medal Sunday from Russia.

So confident he is willing to make a bet with Alexander Gustafsson.

Canada will take on Sweden – Gustafsson’s home country – for gold after they defeated the U.S. on Friday. Sweden advanced with a victory over Finland.

St-Pierre stated on Twitter that he already won one bet with Canada topping the U.S., posting, “My friend John Cholish has to wear a Canadian hockey jersey because we beat the USA.”

Gustafsson, set to take on Jimi Manuwa next month, already picked out the jersey for GSP – assuming Sweden takes down the defending gold medal winners.
